are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel. richard, fill us in a little more this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a libyan source has told nbc news that the u.s. ambassador who was visiting the consulate was killed along with three others. not sure of the nationality of those three others. the u.s. state department has not confirmed this, but this has been told to us by a senior security source in libya. we've been also told that the libyan prime minister and the libyan president will both be speaking today about this subject, offering their condolences to the united states and to the family of the fallen ambassador. and this is according to the report. we were told that when gunmen and a mob stormed the consulate building, they first attacked it with rpgs, then the
always have to ask yourself, is the united states and the national security better if we're gone completely or have a sphere of influence there? i do believe it ought to be leverage as we move forward and we have to get some commitments by this government that they're going to do more in sinai, less to provoke israel and make sure our u.s. embassies are protected fully by the egyptian government. it's unconscionable this could happen on their watch. so it needs to be a point of discussion. we need to be careful about starting to pull out of places that we don't understand the changes that are happening and we don't understand the intelligence and military roles yet and what this muslim brotherhood is trying to do. we should walk into that decision, not run into it. >> speaking of israel, what do you make of this decision the white house telling the israeli government, prime minister netanyahu coming to the united states that the president won't be able to meet with him because of scheduling conflicts. this comes at a time of tension between the u.s. and israel over iran and its n
. and may god continue to bless the united states of america. thank you. >> and that was secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the state department about tuesday's attack in libya that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans, saying that this is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths and reminding people that the u.s. is a force for peace and progress and that this attack was by a small and savage group of individuals. we remind you that president obama will comment at the white house less than an hour from now. we will also bring you that statement live. this has been a cbs news special report. i'm norah o'donnell along with charlie rose in new york. for those of you in the west, our coverage of this breaking news story continues. >>> good morning. to our viewers in the west, it is wednesday, september 12th, 2012. welcome to ""cbs this morning." the u.s. ambassador to libya has been killed. we'll have complete coverage from the middle east to washington. >>> the white house denies the president is snubbing israel's prime minister
. what has the attention of analysts that the egyptian prime minister morsi pushed the united states for the release of the blibd sheikh, releasing demonstrations at the same site of the u.s. embassy. they tell fox that the egyptian group takes its name from the omar al rack man from the blind sheikh. >> inspired by the first world trade center bombings some it is a group that has been around a long time. it has some staying power clearly since the early '90s and it is a group we have looked at in the past, we have tracked in the past and we'll continue to ask questions in relation to this particular event to see if there is any connection. >> reporter: there the question is whether there is some degree of coordination or whether the demonstration we're seeing like those in yemen this morning are spontaneous. one group of demonstrators feeding off another. the second question is whether the governments that are relatively weak will have the ability to offer the security the united states needs for its embassies in those countries. congressman rogers told fox a pressing question is wh
is from the united states when they have killed the highest official, the person who represents our country, in that country? >> well, without some intelligence, the united states has no idea who it is. i am told that the libyan government, such as it is, has promised the white house that it will assist in gathering the intelligence necessary to identify these people. but whether they will, or they won't, whether they can or they can't is something else again. remember that the government of libya has a domestic support among other people, radical islamists and other crazies and it's going to be extremely difficult for them to cooperate too much with the united states because they're on shaky ground. >> are we leaving everything up to the libyan government to search? i mean, you would think -- >> no. i mean we have the capability of using overhead assets, satellites -- >> drones? >> and some intelligence on the ground, too. but we are not very well situated in libya to try and get human intelligence, and at the end of the day, it's human intelligence that really drives the effort to
. >> what happened to this middle east. >> i came here to cairo to seek a new between the united states and muslims. one based on mutual interest and respect. >> eric: did playing nice make our problems worse. >>> and the new plan to fix our economy. "fox and friends" starts right now. >> gretchen: fox news alert we are showing you live pictures from cairo, egypt, another day of chaos as riulent protest are spreading now. four people have been taken into custody for the horrific attack that took the lives of americans in sir yampt including the ambassador stevens and two navy seals. >> brian: they are doing the investigation amid other reports according to the independent newspaper in london that warnings were given 48 hours prior that violence could be coming to the consolate and our embassy. we did nothing to the defense. that was refuted by the nid. >> eric: but the embassy in libya put out statements prior to the attack. the statements were put out and the attacks would end up in the as a result of four people killed. and there was a knowledge in advance of the protest and you have
'll hear the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the president and prime minister simply won't be in new york at the same time this month to address the u.n. but this is just the tip of the icebe iceberg. in a much bigger disagreement right now over iran
been -- had, done, which is to explain her strong connection to the united states. has not only has she been to this country five times -- 11 times, excuse me, five of them on private holidays, the most vacation time she has ever spent anywhere outside her privateutsi estate, some of her closestv friends are americans which may be one of the biggest surprises. she is also known -- she has also known every president from harry truman to barack obama with the exception of lyndonm johnson who tried but fail today meet her. i remember being impressed whenr an official at the american embassy in london told me that during the memorial service att st. paul's cathedral after the 9/11 attacks, the queen sang every single word of the american national anthem. and i would betsi that therem. aren't any presidents who canh sing all the words to "god save the queen." since we are here today on the national mall, i thought i woul focus on the queen's fondness ml for this country and its people, pote little known and well known, and in so doingnown illuminate corners of her life that can help you unde
. not only within the united states, my new book that you mentioned, here come the black helicopters, u.n. global governance and the lack of freedom talks about treatise he's pushing which is taxing american oil wells offshore, billionaires throughout the world and using that money to go to the third world. going past foreign aid and actually taxing the united states internationally to give the money to the third world. that was at the core of the rio conference. and these schemes are floating around heavily and they lie at the core of obama's view. look, when two-thirds -- in 1980 one-third of our federal budget went to cash transfers to other people, money that we paid people. now it's two-thirds. two-thirds of it goes there. so when you have one percent of the population paying 42% of the tax and two-thirds of the tax going to other people, what do you call that but income redistribution? >> well, i hear you talk about it and others talk about it, you do did of it with a level of certainty and conviction, and i think is it resonating with the voters? there's a new nbc news wall stree
for this is the books are conceived as a history of the united states sort of as told through biographies and i was looking for a woman subject for one of these and in fact i found one but my publisher wouldn't let me do it. can you guess what woman i was looking for and found? eleanor roosevelt. i mean, just the fact that it's a very short list of women who played a large role in american public life on whom i can hang a tale of four or five decades of american history. women have had of course their roles in private life but it is in the nature of private life it usually doesn't survive in the historical record. why did people start saving the letters of eleanor roosevelt? because she was important. do your correspondence save your letters that you write to them and then do they deposit them in the local historical society? well, maybe, and if they do you will become, can i use my words adviseably, here, you will become literally immortal. you will become immortal in letters because future historians will find those letters. they will say ah, that is what life was like at the beginning of the
rab world. mo muhammad morsi made those comments ahead of his trips to the united states and says that the u.s. needs to show a greater respect to arab values and culture. reports say that he attempted to meet with president obama at the white house, but dropped that request later. >> absolutely no one intentionally or unintentionally misled anybody involved in this. >> the obama administration has taken a lot of heat on what is happening in libya. republicans are calling the way the attack was handled, quote, a debacle. thank you, very much, great to see you. i would like to start -- >> good to be here. >> with a quote from senator bob corker, briefed by secretary of state clinton and several intelligence leaders late last week about the attacks on benghazi and what was happening in egypt. he said, this is a direct quote -- that was the most useless, worthless briefing i have attended in a long time. this from a senator, not prone it overstatement. what's your take on that? >> i agree. we also in the house received the same briefing. i don't know if they said the same things, but
first. so of not red or blue states, what the united states. i no they're not that many football fans here today. my first story about president obama has to do with football. he was the last interview that i did for my book. i interviewed three andrew and 50 people will for him and traveled the world. i thought about what i would -- how i would break the ice with him for a long time. i remembered that he is a bears fan than i am a pakistan and that two years ago when the packers played the bears in the nfc championship game president obama announced that if the bears won he was going to the super bowl. the packers won. and the star player on the packers after the game got up on the table of the jesse berman said, president obama will come see us, but we're right to go see him at his house meeting if you win the super bowl you to visit the white house. this was their star quarterback, so when i finally got my interview with president obama and shook his hand and said, mr. president, charles got here before me, but i'm glad we both finally made it. he said, yeah, man, those packers wer
've been talking this week about red lines that he doesn't want iran to cross before the united states would be involved in military action. i think he's going to lay out what his red lines are and to say to the world, listen, this is a crisis that the whole world has to deal with. i think this is seen as his final warning that if we done see movement on this issue, israel will have to act. >> i want to talk about the iranian president. i'll let you first eat a little crow. you made a prediction that was wrong. >> i thought -- i said yesterday on this show that i thought ahmadinejad would kind of go for broke, kamikaze in his last u.n. general assembly. instead, he talked about, you know, this new world order that he sees when the world powers would have less influence. but he wasn't as fiery. he didn't mention israel by name. i think a lot of people were surprised. in the statements he was saying leading up to this appearance he was much more fiery. i think in addition to ban ki-moon, the u.n. secretary general asking him to tone it down, i think maybe the supreme leader in iran said
the united states and went to mexico and supposed to be tracked to gun cartel. two of those guns were found in the murder scene. >> this statement from representative issa. this is one more step to justice for the family of briantery. ultimately not only the bandid but those who put the gun in their hand must be held accountable. peter doocy is following the story. >> jesus mesa is in the custody of mexican authorities who apprehended him. five men are charged with the murder of u.s. border patrol agent brian terry. they are not saying which man fired the fatal shot. but all of the five then crossed the southern border to run drug smugglers and was spotted by the u.s. border patrol who engaged them in a fight that left agent terry dead. two of the suspects left behind were linked to a united states justice department sting fast and furious designed to let bad guys bay -- buy the guns and go across the border and hope they would build cases against the leader of drug cartel. they are trying to find out who is to blame for fast and furious. but president obama exerted executive privilege the
is the only place in the united states that this has happened. but wars have often been an occasion for unity, for cohesion. you know, we are all in this together. we've all got to win this together, so we've got to put our more parochial interests aside and pulled together to win whatever word might be. but at the same time new york is a great magnet for immigrants from around the world, from its very earliest days in the 1620s onward, has been a place for discrete, separate populations of newcomers have often brought their own political cultures, the room loyalties and allegiances their ethnic and natural visages cultures and have ended up jostling each other. and especially at times of war come of this has the case in the year, sometimes the tragic consequences. i'm going to start by showing you these images, starting with the civil war. and again, the book starts well before that, but this is where we're starting tonight. so this is april of 1861 after the confederacy fired on fort sumter in the civil war began.
on the united states embassy. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. and we must agree, there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. >> in the last couple of weeks, he pointed out those are probably not the result of a video and were coordinated. he also delivered in his remarks a stern warning to iran over its nuclear ambition. >> let me be clear. america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. we respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power. but one of the purposes of the united nations is to see that we harness that power for peace. make no mistake, a nuclear-armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. it would threaten elimination of israel, the security of gulf nations, and the stability of the global economy.
and also the united states congress weighed in asking for them to honor and allowing for freedom have religion. in the past couple of hours he was convicted of a much lower crime, that is evangelical actions toward fellow muslims. he was released for time served. we have to put that in larger context in terms of nuclear program and delicate game between diplomatic chess, israel and also iran. we're in the middle of september right now. just a couple weeks away from the u.n. general assembly. typically in september iran makes a gesture to show leniency. last year the u.s. hikers were released. this year they are releasing him although it seems a very, very small gesture for the amount of pressure the iranian president is going to be under when he goes to new york in a couple of weeks. >> heather: thank you very much leland. >> gregg: presidential race is kicking into high gear with the final campaign battles set to begin. president obama is in florida looking to pick up the state's treasure trove of 29 electoral votes. any moment he is xooptd to take the stage. ed henry is traveling wi
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
's effort. jon: what do they get out of it? is it iranian oil, is it tweaking the united states? >> reporter: it's both of those but they are acting in their own interest. as every nation should. we sometimes apologize for acting in our best interests. but russia and china view it as important to their agenda to block the sanctions in a meaningful way. jon: president obama said he would do whatever it takes to keep iran from gaining a nuclear weapon. will we? >> not under his administration, that is for sure. he's been saying this all openings are on the table for three and a half years and it just has no credibility at this point. the israelis don't believe him, the iranians don't believe him, the russians and the chinese don't believe him. that's why i believe ahmadinejad comes from a place of confidence because his overall stra teak eupblstrategic objectives can be well undertaken. the u.s. issued a statement this morning they weren't attending because it's yom kippur a hole who hwho he lee faith for the jewish faith. i think the u.s. delegation should have walked out on monday when mahm

the stories with media matters and there is a trail that the department of justice that the united states of america has been colluding with a far left attack dog. that is just nuts. >> gretchen: here is a quick look. hi, i am working on debunking a conservative myth of operation fast and furuous and hoping it would help it out. >> they are tax exempt and that means they are a-political. other than >> steve: so is the department of justice. that's why it is important to the taxpayer and viewer out there. and members of congress are calling for this woman to resign because of the alleged collusion between the departments. >> brian: how many things can pull off on eric holder's resume to examine what he is doing over fast and furious and communication with medias. i understand in congress there is a movement to reexempt media -- look at media matters as tax exempt. >> steve: they are trying to make us look bad and members of congress look bad and people who work in the department of justice look bad? does that sound like justice? i don't think so. >> brian: fox news is continuing to investi

by how scared the president of the united states looked, how disoriented he looked, how it seemed like they did not know where they were going. and i just want to do a hat tip right here, which, again, in this environment you probably aren't supposed to do. you know what? while george bush looked scared and disoriented that day, that day only, rudy giuliani stepped up. and he became america's mayor on that day. and he kept people advised of what was going on and was a great leader for that time. >> it was one of the great acts of spiritual and popular leadership that we'll ever see. and, you know, mayor giuliani is a big churchillian. but he was reading and looking at in those days and weeks a book by john lucash called "five days of may" in may of 1940 between churchill and chamberlain and halifax. and it was a marvelous case of leadership of being there. >> well, and like churchill and we're not comparing him to churchill, but for that time, though, like churchill, part of it was leadership, part of it was a great act. telling people, and by the way, that's what kept the british peop
